Dividend Income Update – February 2017

Another month has passed by, and it’s time for me to post the dividends that Skyy earned in the month of February. It’s hard to argue the success of long-term dividend growth investing when you can slowly and surely see dividend income rise over time and get closer to covering your family expenses.

I hope these monthly dividend income reports provide inspiration for any investors out there that are just starting out. It shows that it’s possible to one day pay for monthly expenses with dividends, which would provide an investor opportunities and freedom to pursue other interests than full-time work.

What you’ll see below is a list of every dividend Skyy collected over the prior month, which company paid the dividend and the amount of the dividend.

February 2017 Dividends Received

  • AT&T (T) – $10.65
  • Apple (AAPL) – $5.90
  • Petmed (PETS) – $2.04
  • Caterpillar (CAT) – $1.60
  • Kinder Morgan (KMI) – $9.03
  • Realty Income (O) – $6.71
  • Procter & Gamble (PG) – $7.09
  • Enterprise Products Partners (EPD) – $4.29
  • Cornerstone Fund (CLM) – $35.47
  • Aberdeen Income Fund (FAX) – $7.84

Total dividends received during the month of February: $90.62

Interesting Very interesting the Dow hit 21K that quick after breaking the record for hitting 20K recently. I swear I been hearing that the Dow is overvalued for over a year now. I don’t say it enough on here or on Facebook enough but People who don’t invest are losing out on a lot of Money.

Yes, people have 101 excuses for not investing/growing their own money but why not do it even if you only have a little to invest? Most of us at least save for retirement so why not do at least some on your own. If you know nothing at all at least invest in what you use/eat at home at least you know where your own money is going, but you know what everyone is entitled to their own opinion even if its not the best way of doing things.

As always we are truly thankful that Skyy was able to earn $90 this month without lifting a finger and continuing to be a great daughter. She did nothing to earn this money except for make great decisions with past Cash Flow!

Work Hard or Work Smart?

  1. Another great monthly update. Happy to see a few names in common paying us both for the month. I’m sure Skyy will be proud of this income generating portfolio. Stay invested, continue to make buys when you can and ride out any future storm that may arise. Yes, many have been sitting on the sidelines or moving to cash over the last year in anticipation of the crash. Market timing at its best.

    1. DivHut,
      Thanks! And you are Correct I will stay invested and will wait for the next crash with Joy and not time the market. As long as we have great companies we will be ok!

    1. BHL, Thanks! And yes I love the growth and hopefully these next few months and years will treat us well.
